I am not one of those girls that has new high-end beauty products every other week. If I find a product I like at whatever price, I will continue to purchase it until I find something better. These are some of my favorite beauty products that I got at drugstores and are all under $15!
Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream, $13
I’ve had this BB Cream for a while now and I still love that it is lightweight while giving me enough coverage for everyday. I also like when foundations have SPF so that I don’t need to worry about adding another step to my regime.
Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation, $10
This is my favorite drugstore foundation (I mentioned this in my most recent monthly favorites!) I honestly always get compliments on my skin whenever I wear it and, again, I like the fact that this includes SPF. I usually wear a light layer, but if I need more coverage it builds up flawlessly.
NYC Smooth Skin Face Powder, Bronzing in Sunny, $6
This bronzer is literally like $3 if you find it at the right place at the right time and I think it rivals higher brand bronzers. It does not have any shimmer, which is what I prefer, and doesn’t look muddy or orange on my skin.
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara, $7
This was my first drugstore mascara love. I really don’t think it is necessary to splurge on a more expensive brand mascara because drugstore mascaras really get the job done. I love the curved brush of this one and the formula is not so wet that it droops my thin lashes, but thick enough to give me volume.
L’oreal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara, $6
This is my current favorite mascara. I was really first attracted because of the bright pink packaging, but after trying it out for a few months, I am hooked. The small-large bristle brush makes it easy to get a lot of volume and even to reach my super sparse bottom lashes without smudging. The formula also sticks well to my lashes all day.
Revlon Color Stay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, $10
If you can tell by the worn packaging, I love using this stain for a quick and easy, all in one lip product. It feels nice and refreshing on the lips and the colors are so beautiful. It adds moisture, color and shine all in one application.
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, $4
I’ve been using this lip balm since middle school and, although I may stray at times, I always come back to using it. I love how natural it is and I am addicted to the cooling sensation.
e.l.f. Studio Stippling Brush, $3
I’ve had this brush for years and it has still stayed strong! Brushes are something that I think is worth the splurge, but if you can find one at an awesome price at decent quality I am all for it. This one stipples on nicely and the bristles have stayed soft and have kept its shape throughout the years.
Real Techniques Blush Brush, $9
Although this is labeled as a blush brush, I use it for both blush and bronzer. I love how soft this brush is and the shape is perfect for anything you need to apply to your cheeks. It is another one of those brushes that are worth getting at the drugstore for its lasting quality and versatility.
